We cannot say enough how much we LOVE visitors! We are always thrilled when friends take us up on the offer to come stay with us while they tour London.
Robynn, Ben, Brooke, Emily, Jake, & Dave
The Walter family has grown up since we last saw them. Ben and Emily were little . . . and Brooke and Jake weren’t even around yet! So, it was great to catch-up during their London leg of their trip (before taking off for sunny, warm South Africa!).
I’m sure Robynn thought we were crazy when she asked what she could bring us from the states. I have such a hard time finding snack size ziplock bags here . . . so that was my request – to top up our stash of snack bags. They definitely topped us up . . . it doesn’t take much to make us happy!
Brooke & Hannah Crafting
The Walter’s also gifted us with a Rainbow Loom, something that is all the rage in the States right now. Hannah has a couple friends that have one, but the rest of us had never heard of it. Brooke became Hannah’s tutor, and before long Hannah was making bracelets and other amazing things she’d find instructions online for. It kept her occupied for days!
It was really great that our kids were out of school during the Walter’s visit, so our mornings were very relaxed and unrushed. It helped our school break feel special as well. One morning the younger kids were all up waiting for their breakfast of crepes, bonding over their electronic devices and games, while they waited for all the older people to get going.
It was such a great visit . . . not even including our Indian dinner/movie night, Sunday dinner sitting around the table talking and laughing, and just hanging out. We hope they got enough of London under their belts before they left. Thanks so much for coming to see us, guys!
